Former-Arsenal star Alan Smith has claimed that Alexis Sanchez’s departure from the club will only help the position of Mesut Ozil when it comes to negotiating a new contract with the club, with the Chilean on the verge of a big move to Manchester United in the current transfer window.

Arsenal’s last Premier League game ended in a dismal 2-1 loss at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday as they lost even more ground on those above them. The Cherries were able to move up to 13th in the league with 24 points, four clear of the relegation zone. Arsenal, on the other hand, are now eight points short of Chelsea in the final Champions League spot, with their season threatening to go up in flames.

Former-Arsenal great Alan Smith has claimed that Mesut Ozil is close to signing a new deal with the club with his contract running down. Alexis Sanchez’s protracted move away from the Gunners has seen most of the headlines following the Chilean, and perhaps the news will help the fans to keep their minds off the departing star.

Arsenal fell to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday. Hector Bellerin gave the Gunners the lead before Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe struck to turn the games on its head.

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, German international playmaker Mesut Ozil will not leave the north London club in the January transfer window.

When asked at his weekly press conference, if Ozil will still be at the club in February, Wenger replied: “Yes, of course.” The French boss was then asked could he move this month, he just said: “no”.

Wenger also stated in the press conference that Alexis Sanchez’s switch to Manchester United ‘Is likely to happen’.

The protracted Alexis Sanchez transfer saga has rumbled on for so long that it is difficult to remember a time when his future was not being discussed.

It has been reported in the last few days that Manchester United now lead the race for his signature, with Manchester City supposedly unwilling to pay the amount that Arsenal have asked for.

United are reportedly happy to do so, while a proposed deal seeing money and Henrikh Mkhitaryan going to Arsenal in exchange for Sanchez has been the talk of the back pages.

Arsenal were handed a big boost in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the club revealed they ‘can’t tolerate’ him anymore. The Bundesliga striker would come as a timely replacement for Alexis Sanchez who is rumoured to be close to a departure from the Premier League outfit.

Arsenal were stunned by Bournemouth on Sunday as they let a one-goal lead slip as they were beaten 2-1 by their hosts. Hector Bellerin had given the visitors the lead, but Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe ran riot in the second-half to give the relegated-threatened Cherries a much-needed win.

The likes of Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United are close to signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in a deal worth £35million. However, there is also the possibility of the Red Devils using Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal.

The Armenian international playmaker would be a good addition to the Gunners squad, especially as the club from north London could have lost Sanchez on a free in the summer.

Mkhitaryan out of favour at United

Mkhitaryan has fallen out of favour at Manchester United. The playmaker struggled to make an impression last season in his debut campaign with the Red Devils after his big money move in the summer of 2016.

Manchester United are reportedly the favourites to sign Alexis Sanchez from Premier League rivals Arsenal after it was reported that the forward was unlikely to sign for Manchester City after the Gunners had outlined their demands for the player.

Alexis Sanchez was dropped for Arsenal’s game with Bournemouth following a lot of speculation surrounding his future. Without Sanchez, Arsenal were very poor in every facet of the game as they fell to a very damaging 2-1 defeat. Hector Bellerin had given the visiting side the lead before Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored to take all three points for the home side.
